The holidays are quickly approaching, which means it’s almost time to hit those fabulous holiday parties! With holiday party season right around the corner, it’s also time to get your holiday outfits together so you can look dazzling all night long as you celebrate the season with your friends, family, or coworkers.
When you put together your holiday party looks, remember that it’s about the details. A fabulous accessory or two can elevate your look and take it from good to simply stunning. So to help you find the perfect accessories, in this post we’re taking a closer look at our favorite way to amp up a holiday look: diamond details!
1. Gold Diamond Hoop Earrings
Gold hoop earrings are a jewelry classic— and they’ve also been having a major moment this year. In 2019, we’ve seen gold hoops popping up on fashion runways, celebs, and, of course, on all of our favorite fashionistas on Instagram. While all types of gold hoops are trending at the moment, oversized gold hoops have definitely been the most popular jewelry trend in 2019.
Oversized gold hoops have a style and boldness that we just can’t get enough of. Even though oversized hoops are eye catching, this style of hoop is still incredibly classic. So though oversized hoops are trendy, they’re also timeless, which makes them the perfect choice for a fashionable, yet still elegant holiday party look.
While we definitely love plain oversized gold hoops all year round, during the holidays, it’s all about the bling. So our top fine jewelry style for holiday hoops is a pair of diamond hoops, like the beautiful yellow gold and white diamond hoops pictured above. One of our favorite things about these particular diamond hoops is their inside out design. These earrings feature dazzling round brilliant white diamonds on both the inner and outer portions of the hoops, which means you’ll shine from every angle at your Christmas or New Years party!
2. White Gold Diamond Hoop Earrings
If yellow gold’s not your thing, you can still rock the hoop look this holiday season by opting for a classic pair of white gold and diamond hoops, like the gorgeous set pictured above. These diamond earrings feature 10 total carats of round white diamonds set in glimmering white gold. With these earrings, you’ll draw eyes from across the room at any holiday party you attend.
While yellow gold is a bit more trendy at the moment than white gold, we think there’s always a place for this classic precious metal option— especially in diamond jewelry! White metals (like white gold, platinum, and sterling silver) create an overall icy effect in diamond jewelry. White gold, in particular, is actually the most reflective of all precious metals, so its mirror-like quality can make diamond jewelry look even more brilliant.
If you’re on the hunt for a pair of white gold and diamond hoops to round out your holiday looks, you can go for an oversized pair to stay on top of this year’s trends. Or, if you’re looking for a more subtle look, you can also go for a pair of small diamond hoops or diamond huggie hoops. One of the best things about diamond hoops is how many different styles jewelers make for you have to choose from! You can choose any custom design to create your perfect look.

3. Emerald Cut Diamond Stud Earrings
There’s no piece of jewelry more classic and gorgeous than a pair of diamond studs. So if you’re looking for an elegant option that will bring some timeless beauty to your holiday looks, diamond studs are the perfect fit.
At Diamond Studs, we have thousands of diamond studs for you to choose from for your holiday looks. One of our favorite pairs for the holidays is the breathtaking pair of halo set emerald cut diamond stud earrings pictured above. These studs really pack a punch in terms of brilliance, thanks to the use of two different diamond shapes in their design.
Each of these studs features a center .75 carat white emerald cut diamond. Emerald cut diamonds are step cut, which means they have long linear facets that allow them to reflect light in big, beautiful flashes. Then, the emerald cut diamonds within these studs are both surrounded by an emerald shaped halo setting adorned with round brilliant diamonds. Round brilliant diamonds feature many small facets, which allows them to reflect light in a more “shimmery” way that’s simply mesmerizing.
On top of having two different types of gorgeous shimmer (which gives some major “wow” factor!), these emerald cut studs are also incredibly glamorous. Emerald cut diamonds are quite glam and chic even in solitaire settings. Emerald diamond jewelry and engagement rings have worn by many iconic women. For example, both Elizabeth Taylor and Beyonce have worn emerald cut engagement rings. But when a jeweler sets emerald cut diamonds in halo settings, they become even more glamorous, since halo settings add drama and visual impact to a pair of studs. If you’re looking to stun this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with these halo set emerald studs!
4. Champagne Diamond Necklace
If you’re looking for an incredibly unique diamond gemstone accent for your holiday looks, go for this luxe rose gold and champagne diamond necklace. This champagne necklace features a richly colored 1 carat champagne brown diamond, which rests in a rose gold bezel solitaire setting. Both champagne brown diamonds and rose gold have a beautiful warm look. And the combination of these two elements in this pendant makes it look rich, luxurious, and simply stunning.
One of our favorite ways to wear champagne diamonds is with a neutral toned look. The warm, yet neutral tone of champagne diamonds looks simply stunning with cream, tan, white, or chocolate brown ensembles. So if you’re thinking of shining in all white this holiday season or if you’re thinking of rocking a rich brown look, this rose gold and champagne diamond necklace is the perfect way to add a touch of warm shimmer that will take your holiday look to the next level.
